Jim Pace has been in the field of providing services to people with developmental disabilities for over 40 years. In 1972 he became an auditor with the Texas Department of Health where he led a team of professionals who traveled the state, assessing the quality of care being provided to people with disabilities. After thirteen years, in 1985 he started Pace Opportunity Centers, and began providing group homes for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
